About me

 I am dedicated to providing my clients with sound legal representation and to taking the intimidation factor out of hiring an attorney.  I understand that seeking legal representation is a difficult decision and I take pride in knowing that I provide my clients with a quality service. 

I grew up in central Wyoming and attended college in Bozeman, Montana.  Prior to attending law school I worked is a small personal injury firm as a paralegal and became familiar with personal injury and insurance claims handling. After several years working as a paralegal my husband and I relocated to Minnesota and I attended law school. I gained employment with the Wright County Attorney’s office for two years during law school and handled misdemeanor prosecution.  As a result of that experience I gained a wealth of courtroom experience as well as the ability to negotiate well in various high stress situations.  After law school I began working as a public defender on a volunteer basis and recently on a contract basis. Then I maintained my own private practice before joining the team at Mundahl Law.

Working as a prosecutor and a defense attorney have given me the ability to understand both sides of the criminal justice system and the ins and outs of the legal process.  As a result, I am better able to serve my clients because I am able to see the case from both sides of the fence and develop strategic solutions. 

 I treat every legal issue with the utmost professionalism and defend my clients aggressively while treating their matters delicately.
